Air Intake Scoops

Hi folks,

Anyone seen these before, they are pretty big state side at the moment!

http://www.mstyle.co.uk/acatalog/Onl...oops_2105.html

Has anyone used them within the UK? and feedback?

Should they help out with my 330d?

You should get a bit more air flow but whether they are worth the minor performance bump on (I'm presuming?) an otherwise standard car, I don't know. Even with a remap, it still may not make a big difference without a free-er flowing filter?

However, they do look good behind the grilles - the bit of red showing through, it hints that the perhaps the car has been fettled with, even if a remap is the only mod!

Remap and K&N Filter so hopefully will compliment them more!!

I do like the look of them also, will take a look at these cheaper ones!

Ive PM's "cyba" Stateside to see if he ships to the u and how much it will cost me, might end up cheaper buying the RPIs from a UK distributer!
